Thoughts

 

IF YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE, ALWAYS CHOOSE CONNECTION WITH YOUR CHILD OVER FRUSTRATION WITH A SCHOOL ASSIGNMENT.

NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU AND YOUR CHILD'S MENTAL HEALTH! 

 

READ every day out of an actual book.

PLAY outside as much as possible.

PRAY often using our classroom prayers. (Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Angel of God, and Various Graces)

CREATE things either on paper, by building, or cooking.

WORK with parent-led instruction should be a minimum of 45 minutes but no more than 90 minutes each day. Please remember, 1st Graders have a sustained attention span of about 5 to 10 minutes. Taking small breaks every 10 minutes to get up and stretch will help your child stay focused.

Time on the computer watching video links or playing educational games can be around 30 minutes per day as you see fit.
